Just Enough Royalty

A couple of small kings were perfect for the grill. Come out with us as the king bite is picking up.

November Fronts

The fronts have brought good fishing with catches from Mahi, Cobia, Kingfish, and Snapper. The oceans have calmed substantially and this upcoming week is expected to bring warm days and calmer seas. We hope to see you on one of our three daily trips!

Cobia are beginning to show along the southern Palm Beach County reefs and wrecks. These fish can be taken on either a drift rig or a bottom rig like the pictured above. Cobia should start their migration throughout March, April and May.

Mahi Mahi have also been moving through the area like this 14 pounder Hernando caught while flat-lining a sardine during Friday’s morning trip. The spring months should brighten up as this colorful and acrobatic fish move through the area. Mahi Mahi can be caught while anglers fish a flat line (no weight), a knocker rig, or a drift rig. Ask your crew for some tips and pointers on the way out to help increase your chances in hooking one these fabulous gamefish.

Mutton snapper like the one Brandon (above) and Robbie (below) caught during an afternoon trip will also be moving in as they prepare for their spring time spawn. Anglers should try to reel these fish in fast for Bull Sharks will be eagerly awaiting to take any snapper for its own dinner.

DSCF0011Spring time is here so take a break from the everyday and come on out aboard the Lady K!

Choppy conditions brought some nice King Mackerel and Mahi Mahi action to these lucky anglers who fished aboard the Lady K. The fish were caught just after a cool front passed through the area. The king mackerel were caught by anglers dropping their lines to the bottom while the mahi mahi took baits fished close to the boat or while being reeled in.

VIP anglers Lee (l) and Mark (r) display their Mahi Mahi caught during a breezy afternoon trip. Lee’s fish ate a sardine while drifting and Mark hooked his after seeing the fish swim up to the boat. A carefully placed bait can have a big reward for anglers who scan the water while drifting aboard the Lady K.

This 25 pound bull Mahi hit a drifted sardine during a mild winter afternoon. John left his rod in the rod holder and let the rocking motion of the boat jig his bait, leading to this beautiful fish. Anglers are also catching King Mackerel, Snapper, Grouper, False Albacore, Lesser Amberjacks, Gray Triggerfish and other species of reef fish. During this time of the year there are many mornings where visitors have an opportunity to see manatees as the Lady K makes her way to the Boynton Inlet and the fishing grounds.

BarJack Fishing still has gift cards and t-shirts available, a perfect gift for the angler(s) in your family this holiday season or any special occasion. Hook into a good time today fishing aboard the Lady K!

Lady K VIP angler Rob (l) caught this large Great Barracuda on an ultra-light spinning outfit while fishing for Yellow-tail Snapper during an afternoon trip. Barracuda are a top predator and can be caught in shallow water as well as around wrecks, reefs and deep ledges. These large fish will eat just about anything and its not uncommon for anglers to watch as their king mackerel, snapper, grouper or bonito gets cut in half by the barracuda’s razor sharp teeth as their fish nears the boat. Barracuda can grow as large as six foot and weigh in at over 100 pounds, although the average fish will measure around 36 inches and weigh about 15 to 20 pounds. Nice work Rob, can’t wait to see what you catch on that jig in the upcoming year.

Fish and Wildlife biologist collect data after an extraordinary afternoon catch of 90 Gray Triggerfish caught by anglers fishing aboard the Lady K during the final week of November. Gray Triggerfish are excellent table fare and will give any angler a terrific battle on any size tackle. One of the most common ways of catching Triggerfish is by using a bottom rig baited with cut squid although fish in the 4 to 8 pound range will take whole sardines fished on drift rigs.

VIP angler Danny has been doing fairly well catching Mutton Snapper like the 11 pound fish he is displaying above. His equation for catching these large snapper is fairly easy, the longer the string, the bigger the thing. Mutton Snapper are commonly caught by anglers using drift rigs around the reefs and local wrecks but a fair number of the fish are also taken by anglers using bottom rigs. Other snapper species that have been taken by anglers fishing aboard the Lady K last week include Yellow-tail Snapper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper and Schoolmaster Snapper.

Mahi Mahi, also know as dolphin, have been taken anglers who are willing to fish during choppy conditions. A very common food fish, the Mahi Mahi can grow as large as 80 pounds and feed on anything, including small sea turtles and seahorses. One of the best bets for Mahi Mahi is by using a sardine on a weighed knocker rig or by “free-lining” a bait far from the boat.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Saturday’s afternoon trip started December off  with Johnathan landing this 30 pound Amberjack he jigged up while vertical jigging aboard the Lady K over an area ledge off Boynton Beach. Other anglers caught Gray Triggerfish, Banded Rudderfish, Yellow-tail Snapper, False Albacore, Almaco Jacks and Red Grouper during the trip.

Bobby displays two beautiful Mutton Snapper he caught while fishing on the Lady K during Monday’s 1 pm to 5 pm trip. Also during the trip, an angler hooked into a large cobia only to lose the fish to a shark just under the vessel in gin clear water. King Mackerel and large porgies were also taken by anglers using thread-fin herring and cut squid for bait. Morning action has seen black-fin tuna, king mackerel, yellow-tail snapper, mutton snapper, small African Pompano releases and a host of various bottom fish.

 

Saturday’s afternoon trip found these Mutton Snapper in deep water where they preferred cut bait over whole ones. The evening trip had an excellent King Mackerel bite along with Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, small sharks, Porgies, Grouper, Grunts and a Cobia release. The fall run of cobia should be starting up soon as November approaches along with mahi mahi action and some keeper sized African Pompano. The weekdays have been running with light crowds and taking some of the bigger fish so don’t delay and plan your trip today on the world famous Lady K.
